Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind, Core Instructor Text

Scripted lessons help every parent and teacher be effective and efficient! The Core Instructor Text provides detailed guidance, and is used for multiple years of instruction – a great value!

Product Overview

This workbook, along with the corresponding Answer Key and the required Core Instructor Text, make up Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind: a complete course that takes students from basic definitions through advanced sentence structure and analysis – all the grammar skills needed to write and speak with eloquence and confidence, with the regular review needed for mastery.

There are three Workbooks (soon to be four); they are non-sequential and do not need to be done in a particular order. Each Workbook contains the same rules and examples – but each has completely different sets of exercises and assignments, allowing students to develop a wide-ranging knowledge of how the rules and examples are put to use in writing. This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student?s mind.

2 reviews for Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind, Purple Workbook

  1. Sharon Marshall

    Is this geared for 9th grade ?

    • Press Minion

      It could be used by a middle-schooler or high-schooler. It would certainly be appropriate for 9th grade.

  2. Emily Flynn

    Is it possible to get a sample of the workbook? What age/grade levels are they written for?

  3. Kristin

    Do the workbooks progress in difficulty?

  4. Alberte

    Can a middle school student successfully complete this program little to no understanding of classical grammar?

    • Press Minion

      Yes! They could start with this with no prior experience/training.

  5. homa80

    Is it OK if I order the Purple Grammar workbook and Answer Key only or do I really need the core instruction book?

  6. Tiffany Phifer

    what book would I start my 7th grader to use?

    • Answer Desk

      You can start with any color workbook; they are non-sequential.

  7. Amber

    How many days a week is this curriculum designed to be used in order to finish in 1 year? (Can we do Grammar twice a week and still finish in a year?)

    I rarely leave reviews
    I leave a 2 star review only to draw attention to this flaw because it is such a big deal to me.
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the content, flow, and script.
    BUT
    The key and workbook do not line up!
    The key should be identical to the workbook except for containing the answers.
    The differing pages and format between the two make it very difficult to grade.
    I would go so far as to suggest offering anyone who has the old key to be provided a free download of an updated, more aligned key.

    I’ve really enjoyed the scope of this workbook and how it uses excerpts from real literature rather than random unrelated sentences. It is easy enough in the beginning for my older elementary children and progresses in difficulty for my child in high school. I see no reason to purchase further books unless a child expressed a desire to major in grammar. This covers all the basics as well as more advanced grammar I have long forgotten as an adult. I also found that it was explained well enough that I didn’t bother purchasing the answer key. (I waited to purchase it to see if I really needed it and I felt I didn’t.)
